Any gift can be elevated with a thoughtful presentation. Artist, educator, and gift-wrap authority Courtney Cerruti share some of her favorite wrapping and trimming techniques with an eye on eco-friendly combinations and elements. Learn furoshiki-inspired ways to enclose presents with fabrics, and use and reuse things you have at home to create beautifully wrapped gifts that are nearly too pretty to open. For additional classes using the furoshiki technique, see Megumi Inouye's Wine Wrap and Tin Wrapping classes.

  • Think about gift-wrapping in a more eco-friendly way
  • Use and re-use items in your home for trim such as cinnamon sticks, dried herbs, salt dough ornaments
  • Fold a wax-paper envelope for cookies and treats
  • Wrap presents with fabric with furoshiki-inspired techniques
